Welcome to the WAC Bibliography. The bibliography, developed and presented in collaboration with CompPile, was developed to support teachers across the disciplines who are interested in using writing and speaking in their courses; scholars who are interested in WAC theory and research; and program administrators, designers, and developers who have interests in the latest work in faculty outreach, program design, and assessment.

To view entries in the bibliography, follow the links to the right. If you are a member of the Clearinghouse, you can recommend new sources for the bibliography.

They find that 'greater involvement in assignment design is a useful avenue to break from the transmission model of education and to involve students as stakeholders for curricular change.'

Considering the increasingly rapid turnover of knowledge and the growing need for multi-functional writing skills for successful knowledge management, including reflective practice and lifelong self-directed learning, the attitude that writing is more of an innate than learned skill has started to change, albeit too slowly. In this article, I will analyze the preconditions for a faster change regarding the redefinition of writing in higher education, on the level of the individual learner and instructor as well as within the frameworks of curriculum and institution. Based on this analysis, I will suggest a model for how to adapt the basic ideas of U.S. writing across the curriculum (WAC) in Germany.

This Forum continues the practice of exploring fundamental relationships between key areas of writing studies. In this exchange, a group of scholars who have done substantial work with writing centers and writing-across-the-curriculum programs explore the relationships -- real and ideal -- between the two areas. The Forum opens with statements from each of the participants, and continues with responses to two follow-up and one closing question. In addition to responses to the formal questions, the participants also commented directly on each others' posts. Members of this Forum communicated with each other via electronic mail and the Web over a period of roughly one month. Their interactions are represented here using links among and beyond the texts that they produced. [WAC Clearinghouse]

This article examines a mentoring initiative that embedded advanced students in first-year composition courses to mentor students to excel to the best of their abilities. Mentors attended all classes along with students and conducted many out-of-class individual conferences, documenting each of them using program-implemented work logs. Four hundred four first-year students provided end-of-term anonymous feedback on standardized forms, which were transcribed, digitized, and tabulated for analysis. Analysis showed that the mentoring was effective in providing the four constructs key to mentoring as identified by Nora and Crisp (2008): psychological/emotional support; support for setting goals and choosing a career path; academic subject knowledge support aimed at advancing a student's knowledge relevant to his or her chosen field; specification of a role model.

The authors know that students' initial attitudes about writing centers are overwhelmingly positive after a writing center visit (25, 30). They wanted know if this positive attitude changed over time, how extensive was the change, and what variables might correlate with the change, especially grades on papers. The authors gathered data with three surveys of undergraduate psychology students: a survey given immediately after the writing center visit (53 students), a survey given after the professor gave the paper grade (53 students), and a survey given one year after the second post-grade survey (16 students) (28). Analysis of the data (p <.05) reveals the usual positive results of most writing-center studies on student perceptions, 'regardless of semester, staff member, or month' (30); students expressed less satisfaction with the writing center after learning their paper grades irrespective of grade given, although students earning As lowered their ratings less than students earning a B or below (31-32); students who earned lower than an A thought that they could have worked harder; and students who earned an A thought they couldn't have done much more (32). Excepting one student's responses, the ratings collected by the third survey replicated the results of the first survey, and students report that their satisfaction with the writing center was 'directly influenced' by the paper grade (32). While contexts might have affected the satisfaction negatively, the authors suspect that the students' lower satisfaction of the writing center relates to the psychological 'idea of self-serving bias,' where these students did not want to take responsibility for their grade (33). The authors suspect, based on this psychological theory, that students blamed the writing center for the lower grade, thinking the staff members would 'fix' their papers for them (33-34). The authors recommend primarily that writing center staff and faculty work together to promote clear expectations of what writing centers and students can accomplish during sessions. They recommend 'forcefully encouraging' students to visit writing centers (writing center-based model of situating), but not requiring them to visit (curriculum-based model of situating). [Eliot F.

North, Stephen M.. (1984). The idea of a writing center. College English 46.5, 433-446.
The author theorizes the practices and image of the ideal writing center. The article argues that the idea and contemporary work of writing centers is misunderstood by his peers in English studies. They see writing centers as a place to 'fix' remedial students skills through grammar drill, typically, and where students are referred to centers by teachers rather than voluntarily motivated to go (435-36). North sees writing centers as a 'place to produce better writers, not better writing' (438). At the core of 'The Idea ofa Writing Center' is talk (443), and this talk addresses the primary concern of centers, which is the writing process (438). North argues that through talk about the writing process and concerns beyond grammar, mechanics, and punctuation, a consultant can become a collaborator who helps students change their writing process behaviors (443). The author demands that students 'seek us out' (442) and 'come looking for us,' not be referred by teachers (440). The author discourages, if not bans, teacher referral or the required visit (440). This is based on assumed values, not empirical evidence. The author states that sending them to the writing center is a kind of 'detention,' suggesting instead that 'when they are ready, we will be here' (440). [Eliot F.

This article examines the potential role of peer tutors and writing fellows in higher education in the United Kingdom. It argues that scepticism surrounding the use of peer tutors in writing is unfounded. In fact, the disciplinary nature of UK Higher Education suggests that undergraduate peer tutors and writing fellows may have an important role in helping other students to develop academic literacies and in promoting Writing-in-the-Disciplines initiatives among academic staff. It looks at recent initiatives in this area at London Metropolitan University

Recent advances in computer and computer-network technologies make it possible to consider an alternative to the indirect, top-down pedagogy used in most writing-across-the-curriculum (WAC) programs (e.g., a pedagogy that views faculty as the primary audience for WAC training). Drawing on the results of a 4-year effort to establish a campus-wide, computer-supported writing environment, we suggest that computer networks and specifically designed instructional software (e.g., multimedia instructional materials and interactive writing exercises) can provide the basis for a network-supported writing-center-based WAC program. Our discussion focuses on development of network communication tools and hypermedia courseware to support WAC. [WAC Clearinghouse]

The authors trace the five-year development and implementation of scholarly writing groups at a public, teaching-oriented university. Using modest resources, writing groups thrive because they efficiently serve all stakeholders: faculty members get much needed support for their scholarly writing; facilitators (writing center professionals) learn about writing across disciplines; and the university benefits from an enhanced academic culture. Another outcome is helping faculty identify with student experiences and, as a result, improving teaching and writing across the curriculum.

By paying attention to genres and to texts as 'tools' that reveal the routine activity those genres embody, tutors and students of different disciplinary backgrounds will find ways to share their expertise. To develop this position, we must first consider the role of genre in scaffolding a writer's progress toward disciplinary literacy. Following this discussion, I will focus on texts and why they are not adequate tools for talking about the multiliterate uses of genres across disciplines. By discussing the results of a case study, I will argue for a new tool that supplements text, making it a richer tool that is capable of crossing disciplinary boundaries.

This study analyzed 671 undergraduates at a small California university, hypothesizing that, due to lower test scores, ESL students would have a lower degree of self-efficacy than native speakers. The authors begin with extensive background information about students' help-seeking behaviors, citing cultural background and gender as factors in student perceptions of self-efficacy, and, consequently, the degree to which students engage in adaptive help-seeking behaviors. The study compared a variety of test scores with data regarding the cultural backgrounds of the students in order to examine correlations between student self-efficacy, student performance, and cultural differences in help seeking. The results showed that self-efficacy and help-seeking behavior were inversely related. Further, help-seeking was found to be the most important element in raising the scores of ESL students.

The authors conducted a study to 'examine the relationships between procrastination tendency, peer feedback, and student writing success' and 'to determine whether a writing center helps writers avoid procrastinating' (46). The study had 206 traditional student participants from writing intensive classes requiring'at least 6,000 words of assessed writing' [56]) and from all undergraduate class standings. To gather data, they administered the Procrastination Assessment Scale--Students (PASS), a self-report measure of six academic activities; the Writing Behaviors Assessment, which the researchers designed for this particular study; and the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, which assesses current anxiety and tendency toward anxiety. After the semester, they also gathered participants' paper grades, courses grades, and overall GPA (48). The researchers found that 'writing center use was associated with higher satisfaction and fewer procrastination behaviors' (50). The researchers also discovered that students who were required to visit 'were significantly more likely to report delay behavior' (52). Yet for some students the 'requirement [might add] the necessary motivation for procrastinators to drag themselves into the writing center' (54). The authors recommend that bureaucratic paperwork should be reduced in order to increase visits of procrastinating students. [Eliot F.
